While we’ve seen many variants of Galaxy S for US market, the Continuum is something different. It comes with a primary 3.4″ Super AMOLED display doing 800×480 and a secondary 1.8″ Super AMOLED ticker display with 480×96 resolution. This secondary ticker display is something new and there’s even a grip sensor that activates the screen by touching the bottom sides of the device. This gives you weather report, social networking status, messages, IM and email notifications.
The rest of the features are pretty much similar with the rest of the Galaxy S variants. It has a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor, runs on Android 2.1, features 5.0MP auto-focus camera with LED flash and support for 720p HD recording. Storage wise, there’s a 8GB microSD preinstalled which is expandable to 32GB. At time of launch, this is set to be a VerizonWireless exclusive device in the US. It will be available 11th November onwards with Verizon Wireless for $199.99 after rebate and 2 years contract.

Engadget has a picture of a new Android device from LG that supports LTE. It is believed to be slated for middle of next year as part of Verizon’s LTE roll out in the states.
From the picture, the high end device comes with a HD camera, either HD 720p or 1080p and it also comes with a front facing camera. At the back, there’s couple of logos which reported to be WiFi and DLNA.
Since we are talking about LTE, ITU has ruled out the current WiMAX and LTE as 4G. Only the upcoming WiMAX2 and LTE Advanced are considered true 4G. Looks like our ’4G’ players are not backing down from their 4G claim anytime soon. One of the CEOs now diverts attention to ‘customers’.

Remember the LG Ally that has a tie up with Iron Man 2? Verizon Wireless will be offering it for a sweet $99.99 after mail in rebate and with a 2 years contract. That’s incredibly cheap for a QWERTY smartphone that even supports 802.11n!
Overall the specs are pretty impressive and we believe this is the first Android based smartphone from LG. We can only wonder when LG & our local telcos will bring this Ally in.
